Saturdays with Stina Nordenstam
Its a sunny Saturday and all the energy i would hope to have this weekend is nowhere to be found. I listen to Stina Nordenstam, who has been a part of my musical library since the mid-90ties when i was introduced to her. Memories Of a Color still has a magic i cant shake from a time when i was growing up...
Over the years Stina has released a series of album, from sweet delicate songs with jazz influences, to the more darker ones with electronica influenced beats. She even made covers of songs like Love Hurts & Purple Rain and made it to something of her own. Stina has been compared to Björk because of her special voice, strong and delicate at the same time. I don't know much about her since she is very a very private person who doesnt like to talk to the press. She has not been seen or heard from in the public light for a long time. Her last album The World is Saved was released in 2004.
It would be a dream come true to be able to see her live, but its very unlikely that i ever will. Her music is meant for magical, sleepy Saturdays like this one...
